Pre-Order HERE!

Five years since the release of their much-acclaimed album, ‘VUUR VAN VERZET’, February 24, 2023 will see Dutch pagan folk metal band HEIDEVOLK return with their seventh studio album, ‘WEDERKEER’, via Napalm Records.

Following previously-released first album single, “Klauwen Vooruit”, today, the band has premiered a brand new music video for the epic track “Drink met de Goden (Walhalla)” – inviting listeners on a folkloric adventure of myths, gods and legends!

The band says:

“Today we proudly present our second music video from ‘WEDERKEER’. The song, “Drink met de Goden (Walhalla)”, takes us on a journey through the life of an ambitious warrior. Only young of age, he inherits his father’s sword and sets out to conquer the world, finding pleasure in feasting and fighting. When he gets older, he settles down on his father’s land and realizes there is more to life than battle and bars. He finds fulfillment with his kith and kin, whom he will protect… with his life!

With still two months to go until the release of ‘WEDERKEER’, we’re gearing up for the live shows. We have added three more release shows to the release weekend and confirmed several festivals. Join us, for the Pagan Metal Brotherhood is on the rise”

Since the release of their impressive 2005 debut, ‘De strijdlust is geboren’, HEIDEVOLK has taken the heavy music scene by storm, conquering stages throughout the world with their very own brand of folk metal. With dual clean vocals, irresistibly catchy songs, traditional instruments and fast metal riffing all fueled by their folkloric fire and pagan pride, HEIDEVOLK delivers an uncompromising sound and musical adventure.

Their new masterpiece, ‘WEDERKEER’, makes no exception, and proves why the Arnhem-based six-piece is one of the best, unrivaled and most exciting bands of their genre and beyond! 

In a world of myths, nature and legends of the Veluwe, Netherlands, the concept album – based on the interpretations of the runes – is a powerful odyssey of the Self, deeply rooted in metal and folklore. ‘WEDERKEER’ (meaning to “return” or “revive”) invites the listener to take a step back from the incessant barrage of media and stimuli and look inside, find out who we are, what is driving us, what our values are, and what we’ve learned from life up until now.

The album was recorded at Sandlane Recording Facilities, mixed by Joost van den Broek and mastered by Darius van Helfteren. ‘WEDERKEER’ once again proves that HEIDEVOLK knows how to perfectly release proud hymns and direct, in-your-face metal songs, and the addition of broad choirs, various folk musicians, on vocals, violins, cello, bukkehorns and more traditional medieval instruments make ‘WEDERKEER’ not only a bombastic folk and pagan metal record at its best, but a glorious album return of HEIDEVOLK!
